Make.Shift is sad to announce that as of today — due to a recent fire inspection — we won’t be hosting live shows until we can get our building up to fire code. We’ve rescheduled almost all of our upcoming shows to take place at other venues — check our Facebook events page for new locations.
We’re working with the Bellingham Fire Department to figure out exactly what we have to do to get up to code. We’ll make more announcements when we know more, and ask for your help when we need it!
Check out this one-of-a-kind, live in-studio performance, recorded at Make.Shift.
Thanks to Gary Washington for shooting this right before Sugar Sugar Sugar decided to go on hiatus while its members focus on other music projects. It’s the first in a series of short videos of bands performing at their practice studios at Make.Shift Art Space.
Make.Shift was filled with laughter, squeals and inspiring creativity last week, thanks to Bham Girls Rock Camp. Their showcase concert at the Green Frog Saturday was packed with parents, friends and supporters.
We’re so proud to have hosted the camp at Make.Shift, and we hope to participate again next year!
Did you know Make.Shift is home to our very own guitar luthier? Devin Champlin makes incredible, beautiful custom guitars to order. He also does acoustic repair.
You might know Devin from The Gallus Brothers, The Shadies, and any number of other music projects he’s involved with in Bellingham. To get in touch with Devin, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll get you in contact.
Check out these incredible, custom works created by WWU Industrial Design students for Make.Shift. These pieces were created as part of the 2012 Mt. Baker Plywood Competition, which challenges students to create unique work using just one sheet of plywood, donated by the local company.

Students toured Make.Shift Art Space in early May to determine what projects would benefit us the most. They hit the nail on the head! Take a look:
